Cave After Saltwater Tide/Reiter, David /Paper/0140587373/S049-A1
In his third collection of poetry, David Reiter shifts effortlessly between time zones and cultures, evoking voices from frontier British Columbia, colonial Tasmania, and the Dreamtime; travelling in the vivid present from Thailand, to Canada, to Australia. Reiter has a change and virtuosity rarely seen in his contemporaries. Classical and experimental, provocative, witty and insightful, his work challenges the limits of what is possible in poetry. 'Reiter's line is smoothly flowing... (his) attitude is of confident external observation ... (his) voice is youthful and excited about the world...' - Ken Goodwin, Australian Book Review. '... A poet of energy, a tremendous energy which spills over into some marvellous monologues, as though the single speaking voice of other parts of the book were not enough to contain it.' - Martin Duwell, University of Queensland.
